in across the world, across the united states. and the reality is, the reality is it is time to let teachers teach again. it is time to let them do what they were trained to do rather than let administrators tell them who have never been teaching in their lives. administrators need to take a step back and let teachers have for freewill in the students because we human beings are not products. that's really important to us for advancement and to develop the world. >> man, i'm taking you home with me. luke. >> i'm here with helen to talk about after school programs. >> well, i just wanted to bring out that colleges, like, well-rounded kids, students. and after-school programs will help us be that. so i'm protesting more after-school programs for helping us to stay out of trouble and learn more than what regular school teaches us. >> more funding for after school programs, something we have heard amongst a lot of kids at this wonderful town hall. >> i love it. i love respect for teachers, i love the idea of students making their own way and i also appreciate all the leadership i have seen both

the president of the united states in that way. let's even take the idea that we are somehow less safe in the world, this kind of discourse that was coming up from condi rice and john mccain. that felt to me the sort of thing that would be policed out of a democratic convention. you're not allowed to show up and say oh, you know, we're much more vulnerable now. we're much less safe than we once were. >> the eastwood presentation, it spoke to the soft birtherism that's been around all week. that barack obama is not one of ours. he just doesn't get it. and the party took on this role as the carrier of the american dream, the carrier of american exceptionalism as though the rest of us are not. and then to say actually he doesn't get it, and implication presuming lots of democrats don't get it. >> i think we're connecting a lot of dots that shouldn't necessarily be connected. >> okay. >> i think clint eastwood very clearly has a history if you look at this man of being one that is civil to people of all different backgrounds. and you know, i just thought that this was an eccentric speech.
